Madison Bullard has created a brilliant video for the band The Bots re-creating the experience of scrolling gifs on Buzzfeed, or in this case Botsfeed. It’s more entertaining than it sounds, and it just might be the most accurate depiction of Internet culture ever in a music video. Watch “All I Really Want” below, and make it full screen for the full effect.
This weekend I watched David Fincher’s latest film, Gone Girl, and then my friend Abi sent over this great analysis of the specific way Fincher tells stories. The video below is from filmmaker Tony Zhou’s “Every Frame A Painting”, an on-going series of video essays on all things film. This makes me want to go back and watch Gone Girl again (this video does not contain any content about Gone Girl in case you’re worried about spoiling it).

When I saw Dimitri Basil’s video for Vance Joy’s “Riptide” earlier this year I made a mental note to keep an eye on him. There’s this absurd energy in his storytelling that is so fresh and engaging. Roman Coppola recently selected Dimitri’s film “Tangerine” as the top short in his one minute film competition. All I can say is I really wish it had been a 20 minute film competition.
Watch “Tangerine” below.
I enjoyed this little reflection on what skateboarding means to Elissa Steamer and a bunch of skate rats in Florida. Watch “I was a skate rat” below.
“Through The Ground Glass” is a stunning portrait of Joseph Allen Freeman, a large format photographer. I imagine there was a lot of pressure on the directors, Taylor Hawkins and Nick Bolton, in trying to capture a subject on video when that subject is someone who shoots large format film. They did it brilliantly though, the footage is gorgeous. It’s also really great to hear Freeman speak so candidly about the process. Watch the video below.
A basketball bounces and rolls its way through a whole lotta famous films thanks to French animation studio HOTU. Bonus points if you know all three films above. Watch “87 Bounces” below.
